Unfleet management: State slowly addresses vehicle use

The Union Leader argues that state officials are taking a long time to address the misuse of state vehicles, following an audit released over a year ago.
Gov. Lynch said, "We should not have employees using state cars to commute between home and work."

Administrative Services Commissioner Linda Hodgdon responded, "We need to find out where it's written down that says that."

We need to find out? The audit flagged that as an issue for resolution last September. Hodgdon's department has been required by statute (RSA 21-I:7-a) since 1985 to "monitor state agency activities and evaluate agency operations" in five specific areas, including "fleet operation." That's 24 years of noncompliance with state law.
